A contestant is introduced to twelve strangers, each standing on a numbered podium. After seeing the strangers, the contestant is presented with a list of 12 identities (facts including occupations, hobbies, ages, height/weight etc.), each of which applies to at least one of the 12 strangers. While an identity may match multiple strangers, there is only one way to assign the identities uniquely to each stranger. Based primarily on visual observation, the contestant chooses an identity and tries to match it with the correct stranger. In order to make a decision final, the contestant must “seal the identity” by pressing their palm down on a provided podium after saying which stranger they think matches that identity, after which a “gong” sound will be played. (Contestant: I am going to seal that identity. Gong!) The podium changes from white to green, thus no changes are allowed to be made upon sealing the identity. Jillette, sometimes after finding out the stranger's first name, then asks the stranger “Is that your identity?” The stranger confirms or denies his or her identity. Confirmation is often made in a manner pertinent to the identity, either through a statement (e.g., a baseball umpire saying “Safe!”), or by demonstration (e.g., jumping rope). Jillette would often tease the stranger for going to a commercial break by saying either, “Isn't it a good time to take a break?” or “It's time to take a break.” On one episode, Jillette would be too shy to say “Is that your identity?” and would cut to commercial. For each correct match made, the contestant's potential winnings increased: After a contestant makes two correct matches, or makes a mistake, he or she is informed of the three “helps” available to him or her (although they are, in fact, available at any point in the game). One of those helps is simply a rule of the game: Mistaken Identity: A player receives one “free pass” if s/he incorrectly seals an identity at any point prior to reaching the final decision between the two remaining strangers, i.e., before s/he has won $250,000. If a player wins $250,000 and reaches the final decision without using the Mistaken Identity “help,” it is simply revoked. Once a contestant either incorrectly seals an identity or reaches the final decision, the contestant may “take the money and run” at any point before sealing another identity. If a contestant makes a second mistake or error when making the final decision (actually a pair of decisions, with each implying the other via process of elimination), the game is over and the contestant leaves with nothing.
The other two helps can be invoked by the contestant to aid in making a decision: Tri-dentity: The contestant chooses an identity and the number of strangers to choose from is narrowed down to three: the correct stranger and two incorrect strangers. The player must choose the correct stranger out of the three that matches the identity. Once the player has chosen to use their Tri-dentity, he or she must solve that identity (or stop and take his or her winnings, if Mistaken Identity was already used); they cannot choose a different identity. The Tri-dentity help is revoked, if not used, once only four strangers remain (i.e. after winning $100,000). Ask The Experts: The contestant chooses an identity and a panel of three experts gives their individual informed opinions on which stranger matches it. In the first season, the panel included a body language expert (Mark Edgar Stephens), a psychologist (Dr. Deborah Anderson), and an FBI behavioural expert (Christopher Whitcomb), although private investigator Bill Stanton has substituted for Whitcomb in some episodes. The experts have no inside information about the strangers. They rely solely on professional training and personal experience to make educated guesses. The contestant is not bound to solve that identity once the Experts have given their opinions—nor is the contestant required to abide by those decisions—and may solve another identity or choose to go home. The experts do not have to reach a consensus. Each member of the panel may provide a different guess for a particular identity. This help is available at any point in the game. In addition to the three explained helps, there are several other points of assistance offered to the contestant: During Identity's first season, Jillette would ask the contestant which stranger he or she wants to know more about. He will then ask that stranger their first name, and several pieces of information about them which are not directly related to any of the 12 identities, such as whether they have any pets. In the second season, this was formalized: at the beginning of the game, the contestant may ask for the first names, and a biographical fact, about three of the twelve strangers. After the third correct match, the contestant can ask about two of the remaining nine strangers, and after the sixth match, may ask about one of the remaining six. After the fourth correct match (i.e. after winning $15,000), Jillette introduces the contestant's friends and/or family members (in much the same way as Adrian Pang does on another Channel 5 game show Deal or No Deal). The friends and family typically have a suggestion prepared as to the identity of one of the strangers after they are introduced. However, the friends or family members may sometimes lead a person to match an identity to the wrong stranger or take the money and go home when they would have won the grand prize. The audience is not obligated to remain silent until an identity is sealed. The audience often voices their opinion on a selection. Occasionally when a contestant fails to recognize a celebrity of some sort and tries to select him or her for the wrong identity, the audience can dissuade the contestant with their reaction. Jillette himself, particularly on early identities, has shown apparent intention on warning, or hinting at the contestants when they are making a blatantly erroneous selection, though he also sometimes is prevented from doing so by a contestant's quick sealing of an identity.
